SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
Old New Borrowed Redo™ recently revamped their web site for creating unique keepsakes from sentimental items like bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses or any sentimental dress. ONBR’s new site makes it even easier to turn a one-time-wear dress into beautiful, one-of-a-kind, custom keepsakes like pillows, baby blankets, picture frames and sachet bags. They reuse and repurpose very special dresses, creating another very significant item – one that holds even more value because of where the fabric originated.
The upgraded site now includes a “howitworks” page and form to give users a better idea of what the process involves. This new section will take users from idea conception to creating their custom keepsake, by choosing the design, fabric, finishing touches and embroidery. There is also a section dedicated to gifting, since many of ONBR customers seek to create something special for a friend, sister, mom or even husband. Why not take that old bridesmaid dress from your best friend’s wedding and repurpose it into a baby blanket for her first baby? The dress is just taking up space in the closet anyway!
The Old New Borrowed Redo™ team has designed everything from a mother-of-the-bride dress turned into pillows for her grandson’s room, a bridesmaid dress turned into picture frames and sorority t-shirts into custom quilts. They recently had a customer create a pillow and picture frame for her best friend’s wedding anniversary. Celebrating 10 years of marriage and five children later, the customer thought what better gift to give her friend than a custom pillow made from the dress she wore in her friend’s wedding, embroidered with all five children’s names and a picture frame to match.
Lindsey Radoff and Jennifer Manroel, the identical twin sisters, co-owners and designers for ONBR, are changing the way women think of those “one-time dresses.” “We all have dresses that are sitting in our closets – from the dress we wore to our first day of kindergarten to our prom dress to our wedding dress,” says Jennifer Manroel. “We hold onto these dresses because we don’t want to forget that special time.” “Old New Borrowed Redo™ creates beautiful, custom keepsakes that remind our customers of that important day and can be passed down through generations,” adds Lindsey Radoff.
Lindsey and Jennifer are identical twin sisters who wanted to share this idea with others who may have the same question…what do I do with my wedding dress after my wedding? Or what will I do with these bridesmaids dresses I wore once? “We provide a way for customers to hold on in a very tangible way to the memory of special days in their lives or their friends or families’ lives,” Lindsey adds. “Having a constant reminder makes that day even more special.”
